In my lifetime of football experience with Liverpool, I have played with, treated, coached and managed a host of great players and it has always been a temptation for me - and others - to choose my best all-time team. I now succumb to the temptation and commit this 4-2-4 line-up to print:
Ray Clemence Phil Neal Mark Lawrenson
Ron Yeats Emlyn Hughes Kenny Dalglish
Graeme Souness Ian Callaghan Kevin Keegan
Roger Hunt Billy Liddell Ian St John (sub)

"Shanks was the progenitor of the "Liverpool way" and Sir Bob enabled it to evolve in a wonderful way. We were an example to all clubs as to how things should be done. One of my favourite aspects of the Liverpool Way was the way in which we dealt with the rare defeats along the way. Unlike modern day managers/players our Managers and Players never made excuses; injuries, bad refereeing, poor pitch etc and always made a point of complimenting the opposition. I remember Sir Bob in particular on many occasions being offered the chance to blame various injuries or a mud-caked pitch (usually Derby's) for a defeat but he always rejected these arguments in favour of us losing because the opposition played better than us - The Liverpool Way."
